I came across this site yesterday while Googling a part number. Works a lot like Nexttag. Just enter a part number and it'll give you all the options organized by price.

I began messing with it looking for familiar things and come to find out, it wasn't including Rock Auto, which was cheaper in this situation. So YMMV, but I hope this helps someone too.

Oh yes.. Started by Merk as a joke.

So meaningful...

Thanks for the link AND notice of the RockAuto omission. Looks viable.

It appears to be just a list of online retailers. I'm sure some are better than others.

One such retailer (found on a parts listing site like this) was horribly sloppy and inaccurate with their shipping.
Fortunately they took the errant box back without hassle but I never bought from them again and never will.
